This will not work on the live realms, as it uses a new function from the Cata client.
Since the previous models had disappeared, the new models are different. But this means that I finally found some that I like. Screenshots have been updated.
This addon creates a swirly fog effect along the bottom of your screen using animated models from the game, colored by combat/resting status. Height and alpha of the fog are configurable.
It was inspired by FogBG by yleaf, which creates frames that hold the blue fog to use as backgrounds for the elements of your UI. AmbienceAura, however, places the fog along the bottom of your screen, and will color green if resting, red if in combat, or blue if normal.
New in version 1.1
There is a new dropdown menu in the options, where you can select how to use AmbientAura. Settings are also now stored per character. You can use AmbientAura to display:
This is how AmbientAura works by default.
- In Combat = red
- Resting = green
- Normal = blue
- Warrior stances
- Battle stance = red
- Defensive stance = blue
- Berserker stance = green
- Death Knight auras
- Blood presence = red
- Frost presence = blue
- Unholy presence = green
- Red fog always
- Blue fog always
- Green fog always
Where are the options?
The options panel is located on the addons page of the Interface Options panel. Hit escape, go to Interface, click the AddOns tab, and you'll see AmbientAura listed there. You can also get there by /ambientaura or /aa.
I want the fog easier to see (or to see through).
You can find sliders to set both the height and alpha/density of the fog in its options panel.
How can I give feedback?
Feel free to leave your comments/questions here, but all bug reports and feature requests need to go to my portal if you want me to remember to do them.
Can I use your code/textures?
All use of my code separate from AmbientAura must be for your own personal use and may not be redistributed separate from the addon. You may use snippets of my code in addons you intend to distribute only after receiving permission, and credit must be given.
Can I redistribute this addon?
My addons may only be redistributed in UI compilations, and any mention of the addon must point to its download page or my portal, both on wowinterface.
